Notes & Reviews:
On this recording from Mirare, French violinist Deborah Nemtanu is partnered with acclaimed Austrian conductor (and fellow violinist) Thomas Zehetmair in an album of music by Saint-Saëns and Fauré. The disc explores Nemtanu's skills both as a soloist and as leader of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris. The program features an orchestral masterwork by Fauré, the suite from Pelléas et Mélisande, framed by Nemtanu's brilliant readings of works for violin and orchestra by both composers. This disc marks Zehetmair's début recording as principal conductor of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris.
